State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

Trump tweeted Saturday ahead of a planned anniversary "Unite the Right" march to be held this weekend in Washington, D.C., that he condemned the "senseless death and division" caused by the white nationalist rally a year ago in Charlottesville, Va.

In addition to Kessler, also planning to attend the white-supremacist rally, according to documents obtained by Washington City Paper from the National Park Service, are David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard, and several neo-Nazis and Holocaust deniers.

The violence in Charlottesville began once rally participants and counter-protesters clashed and a man drove a auto into a group of counter-protesters.

Smaller anniversary events are planned in Charlottesville, ahead of which Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and city officials declared a state of emergency.

Charlottesville's Interim City Manager Mike Murphy said the city had "learned many lessons" from last year's clashes and were taking pre-emptive measures to put controls and resources in place to avoid a repeat.

"On Sunday we know that we have people coming to our city for the sole objective of spewing hate", Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said at a press conference on Thursday afternoon. One counter-protester, Heather Heyer, was killed when a rally-goer allegedly plowed his auto into a crowd. Two Virginia State Police troopers also died that weekend when their helicopter, assisting with public safety during the rally, crashed August 12.

The city is closing downtown streets and public parks and restricting access to a downtown "security area", where visitors are prohibited from wearing masks or carrying certain items, including skateboards, catapults, glass bottles, bats and knives. Many students say they are upset that the university did not warn them about this in advance, especially since it falls as many students are moving in for the new school year.

Mesut Ozil named Arsenal co-captain by boss Unai Emery
Emery urged fans to go into the City game and the season with optimism and said he wanted his players to take one step at a time. And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot.

The organizer of last year's event, white nationalist Jason Kessler, was denied a permit in Charlottesville this year but has secured permission to hold a demonstration on Sunday in Washington, across the street from the White House.

Officers will endeavor to keep the two sides separate, Metropolitan Police Chief Peter Newsham said.

Kessler has been promoting this year's event on various social media platforms and blames the city of Charlottesville for violence during last year's rally, when armed neo-Nazis descended on the normally tranquil southern town.

The march will start at a Metro station near the Capitol at 5pm and end with a demonstration in Lafayette Square Park that sits directly opposite from the White House.

Preparations have been in the works for Sunday's event for months between law local enforcement agencies, U.S. Park Police and the U.S. Secret Service.

Marchers in this weekend's Unite the Right 2 white nationalist rally may have a harder time getting a ride or a room. "You also had some very fine people on both sides", he added. "I certainly predict that they will be much more professional and much more even-handed and do much more to contribute to safety", he said.
